OVERVIEW

Cellulite is caused by clumps of unmetabolized fat, water and trapped waste beneath your skin that push up against surrounding fibrous tissue. These waste materials harden to give the tell-tale dimpling. If you have poor blood flow to your connective tissues, they will swell and stretch apart, allowing fat to bulge through, giving you cellulite. Poor lymph flow, toxicity in your system, heredity factors, hormonal imbalance, lack of sleep, smoking, stress and over-exposure to the sun also play a part in causing this condition. Following a hormone-balancing diet will help to combat the free radicals and tissue damage that cause cellulite. Below are some of the most beneficial foods for those with cellulite.

 

 

Almonds

Following my hormone-balancing diet will help to combat the free radicals and tissue damage that cause cellulite. As part of this diet be sure to keep up the “good fats.” Eat a portion of oil-rich foods such as almonds every day. They help to balance your hormones by encouraging your cells to respond to hormonal triggers more effectively.

Apples

In addition to following my hormone-balancing diet, try to make your diet rich in lecithin, a nutrient high in foods such as apples that can help repair tissue cells in your skin to prevent fat deposits coming to the surface.

Broccoli

As part of my hormone-balancing diet that I suggest those with cellulite to follow, make sure you eat at least five servings of fruit and vegetables a day – with emphasis on more vegetables than fruit. In particular, increase your intake of cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, they are high in indole-3-carbinols, which help to prevent your body absorbing toxic forms of oestrogen. In addition, cruciferous vegetables are rich in lecithin, a nutrient high that can help repair tissue cells in your skin to prevent fat deposits coming to the surface.

Lentils

Lentils are a good source of phytoestrogens, which are plant oestrogen-like substances that can have a significant hormone-balancing effect on a woman’s body. I recommend consuming at least three helpings of phytoestrogens each day as part of a hormone-balancing diet for those with cellulite. Phytoestrogens reduce the toxic oestrogens in your body and stimulate your liver to produce sex-hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), which controls how much oestrogen and testosterone circulates in your blood.
